Garden worms in indoor pots

Your brandling worms or tiger worm, red wiggler etc (Eisenia fetida) will improve the soil quality immensely and provide nutrients to the plants. They do not harm the plants in any way and may even help eradicate any green/white fly and also provide disease resistance.

A "we don't recommend using Jeyes Fluid for this, however, our Path & Patio Cleaner would be safe to use as long as none of the parts of your greenhouse are aluminium."
